    This story is about the most adventurous trek I had been to on my trip to Vietnam to see the Tu Lan Cave systems. It included not only trekking but climbing rocks and swimming inside caves! 😍 We did a train trip from Da Nang to Dong Hoi and from Dong Hoi to Phong Nha Ke Bang.

    So we headed to Phong Nha Ke Bang for a 2-days trek to see the Tu Lan caves. Although we were to stay 2 days without internet, the trip was absolutely worth it with its stunning landscapes and BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE I went with! Without a guide, we would have been clueless! 😅

    A taxi picked is up from Dong Hoi and took us to our Oxalis home stay. We were doing our trek with the Oxalis adventures. From there, they picked us up all to a village called Dang Hua for the start to our trek!

    Water and river can get anybody excited and the little child that I was, the trip wouldn't have been complete without me splashing in the water! But sad part, I had to do the rest of the trek with wet pants. 😅 The movie King Kong was shot here apparently! 😍😮

    Bugs. Poison Ivy.Carry insect repellent!
    We were a group of 5 including me and my brother. We were literally walking around in the middle of the jungle with so many bugs and us, sweating! We were all the more careful not to touch the poison ivys!

    We finished our first mountain and headed to our second mountain to the Tong caves where we were going to have lunch! We spread out my mats inside the caves. That's me and my brother trying out some monkey shiz. Me = a fail.

    The caves gave us early human feels and provided us with some stunning views from up above! We delighted ourselves with some scrumptious king size meals before heading forward!

    Warm weather and the water!Protective gears!
    The stretches were insane! Even though it was a level 2 trek which is supposed to be easy but trust me, it wasn't easy at all! We finally reached our campsite after all that and it was BEAUTIFUL! 💗 It was hot even though it was winter so we headed into the water!

    Day 2 We woke up early in the morning and the weather was beautiful. We were going to cover 3 more caves and swim a lot (although the water was really cold🙈😱) First caves were the Tu Lan caves

    After a delicious breakfast, we changed into our wet clothes since we were going to get wet anyways. Then we headed to the Tu Lan caves. We had protective gears on. Walking through the stalagmites and stalactites was an adventure in itself! The second caves were the Kim caves

    Our second caves were the Kim caves and definitely my favourite till now! We swam through pitch darkness and the caves were beautiful. Kim caves were rather discovered very recently in 2012. We headed to have a quick lunch before going for our 3rd cave!

    And finally our last cave! We had some amazing meals right inside the jungle and played a bit of cards.

    Look how far my pebble goes and bam! That was terrible. After that, we headed ahead to our trek.

    We are finally done with 2 days of trek and I didn't even realise how fast the days flew! Personally, I am not even a very hiking kind of a person but this trek is going to make me think ahead for a hike now It was a brilliant experience!

    We were finally back and I couldn't wait to take a shower with soaps and shampoos. I was still wet from all that swimming I did back in the caves. Our tour guide was a sweetheart! He taught us so many rock games and card games. It was delight to have him along.

    I was going to miss my lovely group though! The trek was nothing like I had ever been on before so it was my first hand experience. Surprisingly I didn't miss being on my phone so much! Although I did want to have more footage of the trek.

    Yes, I was hell tired after all that trek. The last day at Phong na, we rented a scooter and after a hearty breakfast, we headed to see the Paradise caves. My brother is a cutie in cam!

    The drive to Paradise caves was magnificent! Then we had to walk a 2km to reach the paradise caves.

    Okay, no more getting wet or swimming! Paradise caves were dry caves so we could just walk around to check out the area. It was a well lit area so YAY! MORE FOOTAGE! I didn't know the possibility of something so alien being a part of the very earth I resided in. 😍

    Finally the end of my trip to Phong na ke bang and Vietnam. The trek, the caves, the rocks and the scene ties were beyond anything realistic! If you make a trip to Vietnam, don't forget to try this place out. You will have times of your life. So until next time! 😘💗
